This article looks at the changing landscape of job searching for both adults and teenagers, about how older workers are struggling to find jobs, and about the challenges teenagers face when job hunting. It notes that adult workers are now facing competition from teens, as many teens have shifted to working in food service and retail, taking jobs that would have traditionally gone to adults. It is argued that this competition could lead to an increase in wage stagnation. Other topics discussed include the looming skilled labor shortage, deficiencies in teens' job readiness skills, and the need for both adults and teens to be more creative and flexible in their job searches.
